The Introduction to Summer!

When I think of summer I think of gatherings with friends and family. I thought we could try a new theme of "meaningful recipe". Bring a dish and a recipe that has a story and share it with the group. It could be as simple as a recipe you received from a neighbor after a great gathering or as complicated as a recipe that your great great great grandmother brought over from the old world. Let's have fun and share.

    This evening was Food...everything was so good...and Laughter... haven't laughed that much in a while, however, there was a lot of "you had to be there" laughs. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

    I want all of you to think of me this evening--while you are eating and laughing and drinking wine, I will be watching 5,000 dances at my niece's dance recital. (I love to watch my niece dance--it's the 4,995 other dances that make me a tiny bit resentful.) Have fun tonight! See you next month at my house!

    Feel free to bring a storage container so you can take some samplings back home. Most of us would rather share some of what we brought than take things back home.

    Liquid diet for 3 days, then a bland diet...doesn't lend itself to dinner parties. Such a bummer.

    And then something else but I haven't figured that out yet!

    June 1

  • Susan

    Hey Chris (lest you think we're not paying attention), is that an ex-date in your new pic? That would be one horror date you haven't told us about. What in the world are you making for the dinner???

    Since I miss you guys so much and I'm dying to cook again, I have three things I'm making. I'm making a side dish recipe from an old hospice cookbook, the notorious Neiman Marcus cookies and some hot beefs. I'll share the stories at the gathering:)
